Subject: A good episode and a good example of what short dramas can be
The episode does several things very nicely:
1) Reminds us of the deprivations and hardships suffered by prisoners of war in the Korean War;
2) Reminds us that the purpose of a military chaplain is to serve those of all in the services regardless of their faith, or lack thereof;
3) Helps show the power of "Where two or more of you are gathered in my name..."

With all the best of 1950's television dramas, this short piece shows what was good about such plays. Close, tight framing; Good timing; Quality cast; Clarity. It is definitely worthy of being an archived program. And is definitely worth the time to watch it.

Certainly beats much of what is on modern programing.
